about professional learning
Professional learning enables campus employees to develop the knowledge and skills to assist students to be successful in college and address students’ learning challenges. Effective professional learning enables teachers to improve their instruction, administrators to become better leaders, and staff to facilitate pathways toward student achievement.
Creating professional learning opportunities on diversity, learning styles, and innovative teaching techniques are important components in order for all campus employees to grow and develop in their profession.
Professional learning is most effective when it occurs in the context of our daily work. When campus employees arrange professional learning into their work schedules and are given flexibility to allow time for professional training, then personal and professional growth are genuinely supported.
Campus Employee Learning supports the mission of San Diego Mesa College through coordination of a variety of professional learning opportunities for all faculty, staff, and administrators to experience and enjoy in their roles as lifelong learners and educators.
